What an awesome Tea Tuesday post. It couldn't have been sweeter. I love the teacup you carved. Congratulations on your three year blog anniversary and may there be many, many more.

Love your tea stamp that you carved. The coasters are really cute. I guess if they are bigger they call them mug rugs. Have a good week and happy tea day to you. Always enjoy it.

Love how you made this stamp Kimmie, and somehow this is the week I made it back to Tea Tuesday! Happy Birthday to your blog, you have been an inspiration!
Your talents are immense!

charming stamp and pot holders. Congrats on three years!!! my word V. is mintsu which sounds like the name of a suki tea.

Wendy said...

I'm so glad we've met and become sister tea drinkers together. Thank you for hosting this wonderful event and your giveaway is lovely, Kimmie :)

Teri said...

Kimmie---Some of my favorite things are wood block prints so this would be incredible to be entered in to you give-away! Are the kids home because of Easter/Spring break? Seems early to me. Our schools do it either the week before or the week after Easter. The family is split that way too then because the Dad works at a different school than the Mom. Such is life though. We will adjust (hopefully).

What a lovely stamp and the little pot holders are gorgeous! Happy Bloggerversary Kimmie!!

Hi Kimmie, I love that you make your own stamp and then use it in so many different ways. Fun! Hope you are having a great day. Best wishes, Tammy

Hi Kimmie.
I want your stamp thing.
I really do.
I am not so happy because I just signed for more certified mail from the LaDR. I swear, they are just trying to wear
They won't.
Because they are wrong, and
I am
Um, so I'd write more and beg you for the stamp and good stuff, but instead, I sort of need to go get some chocolate to deal with this tax thing.
Oh, and Kimmie, my rust didn't work.
